Hi,
First remove the device file at that path

#rmsf -H 0/4/0/0.1.0

Now run ioscan -fnC disk, you can see the disk shows claimed if it's physical connection is good.

Then execute,

#insf -H 0/4/0/0.1.0

All the device files will be created after this.

Hope this helps!

the files are created succeffully but my probleme is that the file name doesn't much my need. So I have to give a specific name to the device so that I could joint the cluster.

Hello,

you can try to set up symbolic links with the name of your choice, pointing to the default files.
